Something I’d like to start doing is doing better to keep up with the literature. In my most recent efforts here’s links and short bits on articles that have caught my attention this past week.

Cell Imaging: Beyond the Limits

Imagine imaging at individual molecules on the regular. Some of these techniques alluded to in the article could be exciting for moving past our current threshold for visualizing cell processes, flow cytometry. Imagine being able to look at cells for specific molecules rather than just surface markers with high specificity. This would be good to look into what is currently available and ways to increase specificity on the current system I’m using.

Kidney organoids from human iPS cells contain multiple lineages and model human nephrogenesis

I have a small fascination with organoids. Here they’re pulsing the immature cells with different molecules on a time course and finding more complex kidney organoid structure.
